Ongoing Call for Papers for the Community Literacy Journal

The peer-reviewed Community Literacy Journal seeks contributions for
upcoming issues. We welcome submissions that address any social,
cultural, rhetorical, or institutional aspects of community literacy;
we particularly welcome co-authored pieces in collaboration with
community partners.

Possible articles and approaches include, but are not limited to:

     * What are the broad, disciplinary implications and possibilities
for emerging community-literacy initiatives at the programmatic and
institutional levels?
     * How are the rhetorical features of oral, written, and visual
curricula negotiated and transformed in academic-community
     * To what extent will it become important--or not--to distinguish
between "community literacy" and "service learning"?
     * What roles will writing-program administrators play in
supporting community-literacy efforts?
     * What is the place of community literacy in "managed" and
market-principle driven universities?


* Fall 2007 special issue on Appalachian Literacies: manuscript
deadline June 15, 2007. Special issue editors: Katie Vande Brake
( and Kimberly Holloway (

* Spring 2008 issue: manuscript deadline, October 1st, 2007.

Format: The MLA Style Manual, 2nd ed. (New York: MLA, 1998)
supplemented, where necessary, with the MLA Handbook for Writers of
Research Papers, 6th ed. (New York: MLA, 2003).

Shorter and longer pieces are acceptable (8-25 manuscript pages)
depending on authors' approaches: case studies, reflective pieces,
scholarly articles, etc.

When submitting materials, please include institutional and home
mailing addresses, an article abstract of 50-100 words, and a brief
